For those of you who have been following our posts on PublicMediaCamp, I just wanted to let you know that registration is now open, as is the official PublicMediaCamp Web site. On October 17-18 in Washington DC, NPR and PBS will team up with The AU Center for Social Media and iStrategyLabs to host this unconference, focusing on exploring new forms of collaboration between public broadcasters and their communities. The event will kick off what we hope will be a series of local PublicMediaCamps hosted by stations and other community partners.
Registration is free, and you should sign up as soon as possible; we've got room for around 350 people and we're almost one-third full in just the first 24 hours of registration. If you plan to attend, please be sure to visit the Web site and its wiki, as that's where we'll be planning the sessions. You can also join the PublicMediaCamp Google Group; we expect conversations to kick off there some time next week.
